Leaders at the Louisiana Children’s Museum will close its current location one month before opening a new campus.

News outlets report the museum announced Wednesday that the new complex will have its grand opening August 31 on Henry Thomas Drive.

The current location, which has been on Julia Street since 1986, will close July 27.

The new Children’s Museum will be a part of an 8.5-acre (34,000-square meter) campus that will include a literacy center, parent-teacher resource center, restaurant and more.

Leaders say the new museum will have five interactive exhibits focused on early childhood development for kids ages 8 and under.

The museum says the new campus cost more than $47 million to build.
